'Leaders and pundits must cling to fond fictions about Islam being a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists. They thus pass up the opportunity to call for worldwide reform of Islam.'
I really question the peace premise.
Two editorials that I think are good reads regarding the enemies of old and today.
Feeding the Minotaur
Our strange relationship with the terrorists continues. Victor Davis Hanson
Reagan's lessons for Islamism Diana West
I really couldn't find an exerpts to embody these pieces so I would only recommend the reads. It is time to move beyond pettiness and see this war for what it is before it is too late.
